What Makes Tom Cruise The Coolest Star In The World?



If  you have seen Tom Cruise’s heartstopping stunts  in the new Mission Impossible  film you would know he is only getting better  with age.Tom Cruise  ceased being a human being long ago.He is now  a metaphor  for male beauty and  professional  excellence. With  every film he only gets  better.

Cut to India’s Cruise Salman Khan. When and why did he stop growing? How could he come to something as appalling as Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan.That fake hair extension , that pseudo-swag ….


What makes  Salman so distant in  vision and aesthetics  from Cruise?

Besides the fact that most of his stunts are now performed  by a  double, Salman has stopped growing  as  an actor and artiste. His coterie has cordoned him from reality. They tell  him whatever he  wants to hear. This is  why  his cinema has  become stagnant. The affiliation to  reality, the answer  to the question ‘What does the audience’ want is  out of Salman’s reach.

Tom Cruise, on the other hand, is   a curious child constantly in  search of new adventures.When you interview him he  asks you a dozen questions in five  minutes. He wants to know everything about  you. He  doesn’t want to  talk about himself. During that  five minutes he has with the interviewer,  he wants to broaden his horizon by five minutes.

Cruise  is a  sucker for  danger. He wants to  take that risk of  going to the edge repeatedly, both literally and symbolically. He will continue to  grow through the  eight, ninth, tenth  and probably eleventh chapter of  the Mission Impossible franchise.  Put in a nutshell, nothing  is impossible for the Mission Impossible star.

Mission Impossible Dead Reckoning  Part 1 is  the most riveting  film in the series in recent years. It is probably  the best Mission Impossible  film ever,  during the same year that Salman Khan has delivered probably the worst  film of his  career. No,  he is not India’s Tom Cruise. There cannot be  another Tom Cruise.

Would they please finally give Cruise the Oscar . Just because you  he is so goodlooking  and  so physically fit   it doesn’t mean he is not a brilliant actor  About time  he is acknowledged  as the  most successful celluloid star  of all times.

Even Shah  Rukh Khan would agree.
